It isn’t hard to imagine why Ava Gardener would have chosen to spend the last few decades of her celebrated life just one block away from this peaceful mews at Ennismore Gardens. Hidden away from the bustle of Knightsbridge, this incredibly quiet hamlet is a haven of peace, and an enchanting getaway in central London. Think cobbled streets, multi-coloured houses lined with potted plants and a sprinkling of street lamps. Wrought iron balconies branch out at leisure to complete this idyllic scene.
Living & Eating
Step inside this enchanting Mews house and enjoy the characterful and unique interior - evidence of the care and attention that went into making this a home is all around. The living room invites you to stay a while, with a large sofa to flop on. The kitchen is compact but fully equipped, with everything you might need to knock up a feast.
Bedrooms & Bathrooms
The bedroom is complete with a king-sized bed (5ft wide), fitted wardrobes, a flat screen television and delightful wooden shutters. The beautifully tiled bathroom is bright and thoughtfully designed. With a bath and a built-in shower, heated towel rail, basin, toilet and mirror.
Access & Layout
There is a flight of stairs taking you up to your apartment.
On Your Doorstep
The magnificent Hyde Park is just a hop, skip and a jump away, perfect for a morning stroll (or run for the more energetic) Take a picnic under one of Hyde Park’s magnificent Oak trees, watch the roller-bladers slalom effortlessly through cones, or rent a rowing boat and test your speed on the magnificent Serpentine. If you’re feeling slightly more adventurous why not take a ride on the UK’s first Solar- Shuttle - powered only by the Sun! (We’re not sure how fast that will go in England but there is only one way to find out…). With such a collection of Museums within arm’s reach you are bound to go home smarter than you came! While away the hours learning about the times when dinosaurs ruled the Earth in the Natural history Museum, or check out the latest on Art and Design as you wander through the Victoria and Albert. Foodies are in for a treat as artisan bakeries, delicatessens and all manner of food is well within strolling distance. Try Shezan for fancy cocktails and live Jazz music, or head to Chabrot for a traditional French brassiere. Whatever your mood you’ll find it on your doorstep. A small market located one block away on Exhibition Road is open 7 days a week and is a great place to get freshly baked croissants for the morning. The world-famous Harrods is a handful of minutes away, with its superb food hall and unique supermarket. If you fancy a more normal and functional food store then Marks and Spencer’s, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s are all similarly close.
This enchanting one bedroom London vacation rental is located on a secluded mews house in Knightsbridge, within walking distance to Harrods. Perfect for couples and single travellers looking for a luxurious London neighbourhood.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My wife and I spent 2 wonderful weeks at Ennismore Garden Mews. It was our second visit. The living room is very spacious and with lovely proportions. The bedroom is very comfortable and the bathroom and shower are great. The kitchen is compact, but fully functional. The actual Mews is a lovely cobbled road with very quiet with little traffic . The location is superb with 3 tube stops within easy walks as are 3 world class museums, Hyde Park and of course Harrods.
Ivy Lettings do a great job of making sure that the administration is smooth and everything is organized just right for your arrival. They are also readily available if questions crop up.

Wonderful stay in a beautiful apartment
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Ennismore Gardens Mews apartment. The apartment is very comfortable in a very safe neighborhood. The management team made our arrival and departure very easy. We were two adults and a 16 year old who slept on the pullout couch. I would highly recommend this apartment for 2-3 people--four might be a bit tight.
From the Owner
“With its secluded and peaceful location in a mews in the heart of Knightsbridge, this property is beautiful in both style and character. Within walking distance from the splendid Hyde Park, the exclusive Harrods department store and the Museums it really is a perfect base for exploring the best of London.”
Activity and Interests
Knightsbridge’s main draw is the shopping – it is the site of London's most famous store and rich man's playground, Harrods, which most visitors sensibly enjoy more as an attraction than a retailer. Any committed shopper will enjoy browsing the stores (or perhaps just store windows) of the area's international fashion houses or London-based designers. These shops prey on Knightsbridge’s wealthy and fashionable sets, and reflect the fact that it is one of London’s most desirable locales. Architecturally, the same residential features unite Knightsbridge and Belgravia – broad leafy streets, stucco squares, cobbled pastel mews, and an aristocratic feel exuded by large townhouses flanked by wide-set columns. In the same vein, centrally located but infinitely more affordable, sits Pimlico. The area is perfectly situated to reach central London, enjoying beautiful views across the river to Battersea and almost personal access to Buckingham Palace and Westminster.
